My teen likes to remind me that as he gets older everything around him gets smaller, even me. Currently he is 6’2″ and he isn’t even 16 yet. So for awhile now we have had to “upgrade” things for him: clothes, a new bed, shoes, etc. However, the one thing I don’t have much control over is food and drinks. One drink in particular that he had always loved in his lunches and snacks was Capri Sun, but he had kind of outgrown the pouches. One of them would be no more than a single drink currently! So when I heard about the new Capri Sun Big Pouches, he was the first person I told. He was pretty excited about it and we both kind of figured they would just be the same thing only bigger, but they were much more than that!
The first thing I noticed when I went to pick Capri Sun Big Pouches at Walmart was that they came in individual pouches and not in a box.
Secondly, they were big! 11.2 oz was almost twice the size of the regular pouch!
Lastly, they had completely different tops. No more crazy little straws to poke with, these were resealable hook tops that you could clip onto a bike or bookbag with the right hook.
They were perfect.
And I snuck one on the way home from shopping because it was hot. They are really refreshing!
They come in three different flavors:
- Capri Sun Big Pouch Maui Cooler
- Capri Sun Big Pouch Fruit Punch
- Capri Sun Big Pouch Strawberry Kiwi
Fruit Punch is currently the big hit at my house.
Like most teens, mine either a) lives at his friends during the day or b) has all his friends vegging in our living-room. Coming home with Capri Sun Big Pouches and passing them out to the teens was like being “super mom”. Yes, I am cool. As cool as the Big Pouch design!
My teen likes the designs for the Big Pouches and how he can carry them around easily. The resealable tops were a big hit with the group because it isn’t anything they’d seen before for drink pouches and most of them are always on-the-go, but the best part was that they felt they upgraded just for them.
Plus, they can be recycled, which is really important to me.
To celebrate their big splash, Capri Sun is having an incredible contest starring Mike Wolfe, creator and star of American Pickers on History. I am not sure if you watch the show, but I am an obsessive fan! American Pickers travels around the Midwest buying and “picking” antiques and collectibles. “Picking” is another term for buying, but also references how collectors find worthy items. Many times American Picker Mike Wolfe will go into some uncanny places, like old stuffed garages and run down properties. I always thought he would love my Grandmother’s house. Which brings me back to the contest!
Capri Sun wants to see what you would pick!
The Grand Prize Winner will receive a dream come true (at least for me)! The winner and 3 Guests will get to meet and do a half day pick with Mike Wolfe, creator and star of American Pickers on History! I just think that sounds like so much fun! Especially since you could learn so much about antiques and ‘picking’ from him.
If you don’t happen to be the big winner, there are still other great prizes you could win! 100 other winners will receive Capri Sun Pickers Prize Packs which include:
- Messenger Bag
- Magnifying Glass
- Kid Pickers Book
Just in case you want some assistance picking your item for the contest, here are some Picking Tips!
I’m thinking of entering, but I can’t figure out if I should show off this beautiful antique my husband found in some random shop or the crazy Pennzoil bottle. What do you think?
So you get something big for both you and your tweens/teens, a Big Pouch for them and a Big Opportunity for you!
